plays out, mohamed morsi playing a pivotal role here. how is egypt calling the shots in terms of the way the palestinians are reacting? >> reporter: well, on the one hand, one needs to remember when it comes to mediating the deals between the two sides israel has always played a critical and central role. what has changed now is the dynamics between egypt and israel after the arab spring, and after the fact that hosni mubarak, who was a staunch ally of the east, is no longer in power. and now the egyptians became an entity because of the fact they are led by the muslim brotherhood, became an entity here in gaza. and that changed the dynamics and it has changed the way we have been seeing things the way they played out on the ground. the dynamics of what is transpiring that led to the cease-fire, we'll have to wait and see if it holds. that is what has changed, most certainly, egypt, given the fact it is a very young government, has at least for now proven itself. in one sense it has passed that critical test. >> arwa damon, thank you very much. welcome to you. >> thanks for having me

mohammed morsi tomorrow. i want to bring in cnn's wolf blitzer, who is live for us in jerusalem tonight, and anderson cooper and ben wedeman, both in gaza city. wolf, let me start with you if i may. a very tense day with claim and counterclaim coming almost on an hourly basis. there was going to be a cease-fire, then no cease-fire. both sides trading sort of insults and then offering fig leaves. what do you make of it all? as we talk now in the middle of a night there, what do you make of where we really are with this? >> well, throughout most of the day, i thought they were very close to reaching a cease-fire agreement. all the signs looked rather positive. then all of a sudden, on this day, it was getting increasingly more tense in the southern part of israel and what we've been seeing in gaza, very, very bloody as well. you wouldn't know that they are apparently rather close to some sort of a deal, that the egyptian government, the new president, mohammed morsi, seemed to be brokering. they may still get some sort of cease-fire agreement. it looks very tenuous to me right now but you

ring. he was 50 years old. in egypt, opposition to morsi is growing. for a third straight day, protesters hit the streets. some of the highest judges have walked off the job and are calling for a strike. >> his viral music video gangnam style has been watched 810 million times. back to boxing. you may have heard this super star, manny pacquiao is headed back to the ring. he is going up against manual marquez, this is the fourth time that they have squared off and once again, we are proud to present the popular series, 24/7 to show you the story behind the boxers as they train for this fight. so here it is. >> well, to be a great rivalry, it has to be competitive, obviously. because if it's not competitive. it's not really a rivalry. it has to be world class fighters fighting each other. like ali/frazier, that was a world-class rivalry. >> this was one of the most bruising heavy weight championships of all time. >> we had a great rivalry because the fighters were so evenly matched and they had such big hearts with the late artu arturogotti and mickey ward, that was a great riva

way with daily calls to prime minister netanyahu and president morsi, he got the cease-fire he wanted and as did secretary of state hillary clinton. she is leaving and a vacanty for the role. what do you think the way this is playing out for obama, for presidency, for the democrats and for their strategy in the middle east? >>> one thing really important to remember, netanyahu has an election coming up in january, so in our election, he kind of bet even the wrong force, he -- he made no qualms about the idea that he was the supporter of mitt romney's. mitt romney didn't win so now president obama has a bit of a stronger hand in that relationship. even though that relationship, as many people have noted, is not the best relationship in the world, but going in to netanyahu's re-election bid on the heels of this sort of conflict with the american government plays an instrumental role in a cease-fire, gives the obama administration, the state department, a much stronger hand in the middle east in general and i think it gives president obama a stronger hand both in the middle east and at h
